Movi M15 3-Axis Brushless Gimbal Stabilizer

You may arrive early with camera and lens to prep, balance and familiarize yourself with equipment.

The MOVI M15 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer from Freefly is a camera stabilization system that uses three motors and an IMU (inertial measurement unit) to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll. In particular, it works to compensate for handshake or vehicle-induced vibration as well as reduce translation.

The M15 supports payloads up to 15 pounds, making it suitable for professional cinema cameras with lenses, as well as smaller camcorders and DSLRs. There is a quick-release adapter available separately so that it can be mounted on cranes, jibs, vehicles mounts, and other camera support equipment. The M15 is also Wi-Fi enabled, allowing for simple, wireless pairing with iOS, Android, and Windows apps.

The system supports single- or dual-operator control. In single user (Majestic) mode, the system's software intelligently differentiates unwanted shake or vibration from intentional movement, such as panning, while keeping the horizon level. Alternatively, you can have a dedicated operator (Stabilized Slew mode) with a remote control or RC transmitter who is in charge of camera pan, tilt--and if you want--roll. In this configuration, the camera will always point where the operator of the remote tells it to, independent of how the rig operator moves.

All gimbal devices (Ronin and Movi) require familiarization with the delicate and tricky balancing procedures as well as practice operating them once the complex balance has been achieved. Keep in mind that even the zooming of a lens can alter the balance.

In the beginning, it is recommended that you spend time as much time as possible practicing moves before your shoot. Remember to keep your shots efficient and short or the rig will become "heavy" to you sooner rather than later!

You may practice at Budget Video's facilities and we will give you a free shoot tutorial. Longer classes are sometimes available at a modest cost. Ask your account executive for details.

It also reduces the bounce motion sometimes seen when doing handheld gimbal shots. The Ready Rig GS works with any gimbal in standard or underslung mode.

The Ready Rig GS features a load capacity range of 1 to 30 pounds, carbon fiber support arms, and an aluminum frame. Its slim, compact profile suits it for use in tight spaces and car interior shots. A soft, zippered carrying case is included with this kit.

The entire gimbal stabilizer vest can easily fit through a standard doorway allowing the operator more freedom of movement on set and less bumping into things.
